Year 1

Term 3 Summary:

As part of our English this term, we wrote an alternative ending to the story The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers. We have been trying really hard to use capital letters and full stops in our writing.

In maths, we were learning about multiplication and division by using arrays, grouping and sharing. We have also been learning about the place value of numbers up to 50. We learnt to compare numbers and recognised one more and one less than a given number.

As part of our geography learning this term, we have been learnt about the four countries of the United Kingdom and we were using directions such as north, east, south and west to describe where the countries are.

We also had an international day, where each class learnt about a different country. Liskeard found out about France, Par learnt about Italy and Bodmin spend the day learning about Australia. We had such a great day!

In art, we have been exploring different ways to fold paper and make paper shapes over the term. We then created our own 3d paper sculptures. We chose a different animal to make into a 3d sculpture. In science, we have been learning about animals. We have learnt about the structure of different animals as well as animal’s diets. We have sorted animals into carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.
